Christmas is, for a lot of people, a time for gifts.
For giving and receiving stuff.
And some stuff is nice, especially lululemon stuff.
But in May 2010, after a long battle with infertility, I received everything I have ever wanted.
As I write this email, my two little runners are downstairs chatting with each other, playing and giggling.
My little family complete, and I’m so grateful.
I get why sleep deprivation is a form of torture, only those who have truly experienced what it is like to not sleep for weeks, months, and beginning to turn into years know how I feel.
When I hear of those mothers complaining that their child woke up once last night, I want to flick pennies at their head, and those who say nonchalantly “my child has slept through the night from the moment they were born”, well I switch to loonies for them.
The reaction isn’t rationale. I know that.
But, when you have slept zero hours in the night time in the past week, how else can someone react?
I try never to complain about motherhood, being a mother is SO much easier then all the work it took to bring them into this world, but, when sleep is an elusive dream, it’s hard not to have a little pity party (complete with an extra large Tims).
